Bosses at German publishing company Taschen are commemorating the 20th anniversary of the start of Gisele's career with the new tome, which will feature 300 shots of the Brazilian beauty in various states of undress, and Bundchen will sign all 1,000 copies.

Announcing the book's November (15) release, a Taschen spokesman says, "From her legendary nude portrait by Irving Penn, chosen as the book's cover, to iconic shots from such industry luminaries as David LaChapelle, Juergen Teller, Inez & Vinoodh, Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott,and Corinne Day, it is a unique artistic presentation of the most famous Brazilian export together with Pele and Senna, and the highest-earning model in the world."

Gisele, 35, recently topped Forbes magazine's highest-paid model list for the ninth consecutive year, with an estimated $44 million (£27.5 million) fortune.
